Summer Intersession Classes

Summer classes are a great way to lighten your course load for next year, catch up on missed classes or even graduate early. Wilkes offers a variety of in-person and online class sessions to suit your summer plans.

Wilkes also welcomes visiting students looking to take classes and transfer credits to their home institution.

On the graduate level, classes are available on weekends and in the evenings. Special undergraduate courses at the Marine Science Consortium at Wallops Island, Virginia are also offered each summer.

Summer Housing

Students who are taking classes during a Summer term and will be resident students for the following Fall semester will receive housing free of charge.

Housing will only be provided during the time the student is taking classes and/or engaged in other University activity. Once classes and other University activities are over, the student will be expected to vacate their residential space.


For more information on residence hall or dining facilities, please contact the Residence Life Office or the Dining Service Office.


Undergraduate intersession courses are offered at the reduced tuition rate of $530 per credit plus any associated fees.

  • graduate programs.
  • Professional programs.
  • Accelerated programs.
  • Second bachelor's degree programs.
  • Courses already discounted.

Students who are already participating in other tuition discount plans, such as Young Scholars and John-Hopkins Scholars, are not eligible for additional discounts.

Tuition and Billing

Students who enroll in winter intersession will receive an additional discount during summer! You will receive an additional $25 off per credit for one Summer course. The discount will be applied to your tuition bill once it is verified. Graduate level and professional programs are excluded.

Financial Aid

Students may apply for financial aid during intersession and may be eligible to receive funds through the Stafford Loan Program, the Pell Grant Program, or the PHEAA State Grant Program. Contact Financial Aid for more information.

Funds used during intersession may affect fall/spring eligibility.
